Music Play Children’s Festival

10 Dec 2015

Music Play Children’s Festival Image

By Eva Garnes

On January 14 - 16, the Melbourne Recital Centre becomes an oasis of fun for children in Southbank, as the Music Play Children’s Festival takes over.

The three-day festival offers kids an introduction to music through entertainment, where the children themselves can participate in the musical creation.

Some of the highlights in their program include events such as the Space Symphony, where youngsters are introduced to space-themed compositions. Here they will encounter iconic music such as John William’s Star Wars and Richard Strauss’ Also sprach Zarathustra, which was used as the theme to 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Another big event of the festival is Think of an Adventure with Jay Laga’aia. Together with the Play School entertainer, children can dance along to his story filled with fun and mysteries.

In addition to these highlights, the festival caters to all groups of children and, on January 16, pre-schoolers with autism can attend the Sing-Swing-Play Music Class for Preschoolers with Autism. Here the children can play with musical instruments and sing nursery rhymes in a safe environment, all while being led by specialist music educator for children with autism, Melinda Ceresoli.
